I’m Meri. I am a wife and mom, so naturally I wear a million hats. When I’m not telling visual stories with my photography, I’m likely binging on Netflix, chowing down on french fries, or reading Harry Potter for the ten millionth time (likely a combination of all three!). 

I met my husband when we were both in middle school. He was goofy and exhausting. By high school, though, we were best friends. There was always a hint of something more, but neither of us ever said anything or acted on it. We continued to date other people through high school, hanging out and keeping in touch every so often. One random day during freshman year of college, I happened to notice him at the mall. We had lost touch for a while and I was shocked to see how he had changed. We quickly picked up where we had left off, chatting easily and goofing off. We exchanged numbers and have barely been apart since. We got married a year and half later (on New Years Day). We were crazy and young. (We’re still pretty crazy, but not quite as young.)

Many years later, we have only grown to love each other more as we have built our life together. We have two wonderful, silly, stubborn girls. We still live our life based on the crazy foundation of love and it has shaped our relationship for the better. It has helped to constantly ground me and prioritize my life by what the important things really are.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized more and more that relationships are what matter. 

It's so easy to get caught up in life's day to day stresses; from the tediousness of living to pay bills and make appointments, to picking the same clothes and toys up hundreds of times each week. We lose some of the wonder and magic of our stories... but it’s still there!

All of us have an epic story to tell, a love story with our most precious loved one. 

That’s why I am so passionate about what I do. I absolutely love to work with couples at all stages and of all ages tell the story of their love through photography. I firmly believe that we all have that passion for each other inside of us. Capturing that special connection between people and creating beautiful art that will be a testament to that love for generations to come is why I adore what I do.
